When Mr P. asked us to build a storage shed for garden equipment, we were pleased to help. John Shields did a site visit to discuss building this bespoke lean-to shed . After discussing the options with the customer, it was decided on a suspended floor, using douglas fir posts concreted into the ground. Floor joists were installed, with 150×32 floor boards on top, making it a strong construction and having minimal timber in contact with the ground.
Plastisol box profile roof sheets were used for the roof, on top of 11mm board and membrane. The building has no gutters on it, with the roof sheets overhanging the building approx 200mm. We decided that leaves would block the gutters, (see Autumn & winter timber building maintenance).
